May Day

Photo: by Leslie Nipps

We can find good reason

every day to march

to show our solidarity and care. 

It takes persistence to

change the direction of the tide. 

So, let’s march

call and write. 

And, on this first day

of May

let fragrant Spring

flirt wildly

and show us her

trees elegantly unfurling

and popping of petals

in confetti confection. 

Resistance can come

also through seeing what is right

before us,

seeing and 

caring.
